The company was founded in 1996 in Morro d’Oro, in the heart of the Vomano valley. Gennaro Montecchia, the founder, decided to give new life to an old mill. It is the beginning of a story inspired by love for olive oil and enthusiasm for experimenting with production techniques, a technological revolution in the world of high-quality Extra Virgin Oil.
Innovations and awards lead Frantoio Montecchia to establish itself as an international reality, and in 2008, the business moved to its current headquarters. Today, Frantoio Montecchia is a reference point for consumers, restaurateurs, farmers and olive oil enthusiasts, a place to meet, taste and study.
At Frantoio Montecchia, olive oil production is based on in-depth study, experimentation, knowledge of the land and respect for nature. The goal is to have a positive impact on the Extra Virgin culture, guiding farmers and customers to true food awareness.
We work for sustainable development and continuous innovation of production techniques, investing in safe machinery, renewable energy and organic agriculture. Professionalism and passion, so that good olive oil reaches everyone’s table.
Every day, the Frantoio Montecchia team works side-by-side as a team of professionals and grows like a real family. Each of the people involved in the life of the Frantoio contributes to make the company a point of reference in the world of extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality.
